We booked as a party for 4 apartments and a lodge all which were spacious and really comfortable. We were very impressed. We really enjoyed our break as we had good company and space to celebrate in. We were less than impressed with some of the service however. The reception was particularly poor and unhelpful Everything seemed to be too...

We booked here for the new year break, caravan pitches are spacious but get very muddy in winter, however I understand they are all being gravelled this year. The facilities have recently been upgraded however the toilet block is often not that clean which puts me off showering, there are good pool facilities and activities for the children. I feel...

We booked a table for 10 of us for a Christmas night out - we expected the usual office type christmas 'do', so our expectations of a winter wonderland were not that high ! There were quite a few other large tables in the same night -but as the room is large , we did not feel crammed in at...

To start with, the moans:- I do not like to be lied to when booking, I made the reservation over the phone with James who assured me the refurbished Primrose Walk apartments have a dishwasher - they don't. Whilst not the be-all-and-end-all it was important to me, not a great first impression. To claim the apartment had recently been refurbished...

16 of us stayed in 3 lodges for my moms 70. We had a great time, even tho it rained the entire weekend. The lodges were absolutely lovely and all were really warm and well equipped. We stayed quite close to the main pool and entertainment area, was only a couple hundred yards away. All the kids, and most the...

Thanks to a groupon voucher we booked a 4 night break in early November. Due to having a 15 month old we needed somewhere she could play and be safe and Pond Side no.9 was perfect! Arrival check-in was smoothly done and the staff helpful. The lodge was better than expected, the kitchen was well equipped with a new fridge,...

This is our 4th visit to Whitemead and we have always had a great time. The pool facilities are great, and have had a recent refurbish. There is a good bar area at the main building along with a canteen style eating area which would benefit from being upgraded to a full restaurant although this is only my preference. There...

We've enjoyed staying at Whitemead Forest Park over many years, occasionally with our touring caravan, sometimes staying in either the log cabins or the apartments (but as yet not in the new Glamping Pods that are being installed). On this visit with family members we were lucky to secure a booking in the one and only bungalow on site. With...
